Wolf Eyes and Deafheaven rang in 285 Kent’s Nirvana

Saturday night marked the second to last night for long running DIY spot 285 Kent. It sort of ended like it started, with lots of technical difficulties and delays. One could say, the place went out in style. A style it had cultivated all by itself for many years. On a more positive note, one just gotta love the ‘lawlessness’ of it all (Think 4/20). Below are the full headlining sets by Wolf Eyes and Deafheaven.
